5.0 out of 5 stars Fluid Mechanics, Compressible, Thermo companion. March 29, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book practically saved my life. I had the misfortune of getting textbooks in these classes generally with poor examples and no homework questions answered. Finding myself in a bind for Shockwaves in Compressible Flow, I dust off my trusty Schaum's accepting the fact that it probably won't have such a complicated subject.

I was wrong.

In fact, the proofs give my textbook a run for their money, and the methods in the examples are the same but better documented. Plus I got 50 problems to practice, and I didn't have to hope I got it right! The answers were right there giving me instant feedback on my ability to do general problems similar to what will be on my exam.

For the 20 bucks or whatever it costs, it is well worth it. I've already used this book for 3 classes, and have found it more useful than the near $500 I had to spend on the required texts.

Find a prof that doesn't require homework from an expensive book, and pick this baby up. If you get in some technical bind that this book somehow can't help with, borrow a buddies text, then practice out of the Schaum's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fluid Dynamics August 14, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This a must for any serious student of fluid mechanics. The solved problems really help to get a real grasp of the subject matter, while enable the student to get ready on the fundamentals needed to tackle more profund challanges. I will recommend this book to anyone that seeks a complete understanding of how fluid behave under certain specified conditions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive May 24, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Used this as a supplementary text to try and bring in an alternative perspective to the material for my Thermals & Fluids class. I didn't actually use it during the time I was taking the class but after I skimmed through the text and it had more in the way of content then my actual textbook for the course had. I would recommend this to people who either want it to help them when learning the material or for professionals who just need a casual reference text for when they are working.
